I accidentally started uploading a show to the LMA that I've already uploaded (without checking first because it was still sitting in my "to upload" folder). I cancelled the remaining queued files but now I have several files sitting in limbo, and I'd like to have them removed so I can proceed with uploading different shows.

If it's possible for me to do this, I'm not seeing how.

Thanks

They should disappear within 48 or 72 hours, but there's no way to delete them yourself. You can try one of three things:

1) Clear your archive.org-related cookies, which might clear your session and connect you to a different upload server where you don't have a queue.

2) Use a different browser, which will open a new session until your original uploads expire.

3) Continue with a different show and delete the outlier files from the new identifier you use post-checkin.

Thanks. If it happens again I will do what you suggested. I thought I had a few more shows to upload and I wanted to get to them right away, but then I checked and it turns out I already uploaded them as well and I just never moved them out of my "to upload" folder.
